The PTA encourages input from the community to enhance the experiences at West Woodland. Here are a few methods to do so:
  • Visit with a PTA board  member or volunteer, or a teacher or staff member .
  • Attend PTA General Meetings. See the calendar for dates.
  • Participate in the school survey in the Spring. Here are the results from the Spring 2016 survey.
  • Join the WW Parents Newsgroup. This is an open forum of West Woodland parents and alumni.

Our West Woodland PTA Legislative Liaison works to keep our community aware of public policy issues that affect schools.

If you have any questions about issues with the school district or the state legislature regarding education bills and funding, feel free to contact West Woodland's Legislative Liaison, Christina Witteman. Our legislative chair reports to the West Woodland community about education issues via the WW parents Yahoo Group, at PTA board meetings, and at PTA General Meetings. The Washington State Legislature will convene in the spring. Legislators need to hear from parents, teachers and staff about our priorities in regard to education.

Meeting Minutes & PTA Newsletters:

The WWPTA Board meets on the first Monday of every month. If there is an issue or idea you want the WWPTA to address, let us know! You are welcome to put an item on our agenda at any time.  Please email one of the co-presidents prior to the Friday before the meeting in order to place your issue on the agenda for that month. Also, members of our community are welcome to come to any board meeting. It is helpful, but certainly not required, if you let us know you are coming.

All PTA Board Meeting minutes and PTA General Meeting minutes can be found in the office in the "PTA Minutes" binder. If you would like for a copy of any minutes to be emailed to you, please contact our secretaries directly and they will be happy to furnish them to you. The 2014-2015 PTA Board secretaries are: Darcy Perrault (darcy@evilolive.com) and Shaynee Snider (shayneegray47@gmail.com).
